Portland State University recently became a member of NobleHour, an online platform that connects organizations just like yours with volunteers who want to give back to their community. This means there are now 25,000 PSU students in the Portland area that will have access to NobleHour to find opportunities, volunteer their time, and track their community impact.
Let Knowledge serve the city
Through meaningful service opportunities ranging from one-day service events to year-long service commitments, PSU’s Student Community Engagement Center strives to provide and highlight a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities for all students at Portland State to engage with the community and become catalysts for change. Last year, Portland State students accessed nearly 200 different volunteer opportunities posted by 45 community partners across the Portland Metro area, and gave countless volunteer hours to embodying the university’s motto, “Let Knowledge Serve the City.” With NobleHour on board, we are excited to see this impact grow even deeper!

NobleHour is an interactive tool that lets organizations do their most important work by helping them find people who want to help.

Did we mention there is an app for that?

How much does it cost?
Joining NobleHour is FREE. This means you can quickly and easily set up a NobleHour community, begin posting volunteer opportunities, and connect with PSU students (and others!) who are looking to support your cause.
"We're excited to move to NobleHour as our one-stop shop for PSU students to find, connect with, and track hours for volunteer opportunities with all of our community partners who join our NobleHour community! The Student Community Engagement Center here at PSU sees more and more interest from students wanting to engage in the community each year; with NobleHour our students can easily log in with their PSU credentials, we're anticipating more students will be using this resource to find volunteer opportunities in the year to come."
-Melia Tichenor, Interim Coordinator, Student Community Engagement Center at Portland State
